Teacher in Charge: Ms S. Barrett
Japanese at Year 10 scaffolds students towards the senior school. Akonga learn how to describe the world and the decisions they make, such as clothing, interests, and transport. Reading and writing opportunities increase, along with further investigation into traditional and contemporary cultural aspects - both samurai and JDM! The aim is to develop increasingly confident communicators who are curious about exploring all that Japan has to offer.
